Radeon on linux-libre kernel

Hey anon, I'm desperately need to tell you something about the xf86-video-ati driver. Well apperently, just recently I made a switch to use a linux libre kernel and it seems to work flawlessly on most of its free driver modules that can be loaded at boot into xorg server without kernel mode drm. The xf86-video-ati source code can be reach at its github here https://github.com/freedesktop/xorg-xf86-video-ati, there's also other alternative sources available which you can easily find it on the internet.

So, according to its shell man page documentation they provided, it only mention few option of modesettings modules that can be loaded into linux-libre kernel. The choices are "glamor", "exa" and "xaa" which being said that "xaa" it's an traditional technique of acceleration method according to https://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/precise/man4/radeon.4.html. I read somewhere about the glamor modules, supposely it is the highest end of xf86-video-ati module has to offer. Out of my curiousity, I did more analysis on it and finally figure out where the system fetched all these module files according to my xorg log until, I found out more undocumented driver modules available that can be loaded into config files.

All of these modules can be fetch from /usr/lib/xorg/modules

Ooo, a new tech board? fuck it i'll make the first thread on linux autism, any anons on here run linux? if so what distro and rice setup you rocking? Deb/XFCE here for that comfy practical setup.

Somewhat unrelated, I was watching a smaller Linux YT channel and they leaked that Linux Mint is setting up some sort of inner clique for shilling that POS distro among new users, majority of people being bloggers, and casual tech channels apparently, and are intended to influence their audience to use Mint; what are you guys' thought on that?

Why Linux is so recommended for programming?

I'm programming in C++, and I've been asking some tips to be a better programmer. Sometimes the people say "Install some Linux distro" and never says because I should install Linux, so, why Linux?
